    We all know that Batman is everywhere. People really like Batman. Mattel has released a Batman item that's a mix between a toy and a game. With their Apptivity line, you can take a Batman figure and bring him to life, sort of, by playing with him in a free iPad App.

    No Caption Provided

    By searching "Batman Apptivity," you can download the game and get started. There are different figures you can buy. You can find them HERE. There are different versions available and the prices vary. You just have to look.

    If you've watched the video above, you can see this is intended for younger players. It's important that they have something they can play that's Batman or comic book related. Obviously we wouldn't want young children getting into Arkham City or Injustice: Gods Among Us. The App gives different levels they can play through and the figure doubles as a toy they can play when you can't give up your iPad.

    The levels do have some variation. I only played through the first three in the video. It's a fun idea. It's something that should keep younger kids occupied. The game isn't perfect. There are some control issues that require you get used to it first. But flying through the air was pretty cool.

    Was it fun? It looked like the mechanics of landing a punch were really iffy. Reminds me of "playing" game demos at the arcade when I didn't have quarters as a kid.

    @crash_recovery: It gets better once you get the hang of it. The flying part was really fun. The climbing part, not bad.

    The app looked a little unresponsive with the figure at times, but i can understand that that would happen.

    How is this a PAID advertisement? If you're going to try to make accusations, maybe at least spell the word correctly?
